Transiting from one disciplinary field to another is presented as something ines-capable. Good anthropology, which has been able to carry out operations of crossing from one culture to another, in the same way becomes aware of carrying out trans operations from one discipline to another. When anthropology is good, it is not only the receptor of a multiplicity of disciplinary knowledge; it also has the capacity to produce a return effect on the disciplines it is forced to use, de-termining a trans-disciplinary dialogue and a transcultural dialogue. The oscil-lation between "individuo" and "dividuo" leads to the intermediate space of "condividuo", proposed as a trans-disciplinary notion, a place of encounter at the same time inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural.
Keywords: disciplinary scope, trans-culture, trans-discipline, multiple disciplinary knowledge, anthropology as a disciplinarily multiple receptor, anthropology producing feedback on adopted disciplines, individuo, dividuo, condividuo
